An informative and humorous documentary film, “Food Stamped” follows a couple as they attempt to eat a healthy, well-balanced diet on a food stamp budget. Through their adventures they consult with members of U.S. Congress, food justice organizations, nutrition experts, and people living on food stamps to take a deep look at America’s broken food system.

Tasha Gerken, MS, RD, Nutrition Educator with Access Health and Lee Cataldo, Outreach & Education Coordinator with Brunswick-Topsham Land Trust, will be joined by Mary Turner, Food Security Coalition Coordinator, and Ethan Minton, Program Director, with Mid Coast Hunger Prevention, to lead the audience in a discussion directly following the film.

The film series continues throughout the year, featuring films that shine a spotlight on important health topics for the Midcoast region. For upcoming films and to reserve seats, visit: http://www.explorefrontier.com/schedule/film.
